We stopped in to enjoy dessert and the fabulous view. We're never disappointed at Grand Lux. The carrot cake is outstanding, but oh the bread pudding! Soft bread, warm rich caramel, crunch from the candied nuts. Huge portions so it's great for the table to share.

I had lunch at the Grand Lux Café on November 11th for the kick off of my birthday weekend. I had never been here before and was very excited! It was 9 of us and I ordered the Parmesan Crusted Pork Chop and it was totally delish! I usually do not eat all of my food, but I ate EVERY... More

We come to Chicago every year, the day after Thanksgiving. We almost always include a meal at Grand Lux. Really disappointed this year. You need to order the apple pie dessert right away. We did. After our meal, waiter said "Do you want dessert?" We said we ordered the pie. The waiter pretended to remember and quickly left for the... More

This place is crazy, so large and full of people and you typically have to wait any where between 30 to 60 minutes to be able to get a table. Once you finally have a table and go to the second floor through the escalators, you still have to wait another 5-10 minutes to receive the table and be able... More

We came for a break while shopping and the beignets were excellent. Coffee and tea were good too. Our server was very nice and great service.

This is not our 1st time here but it had been nearly 2 years since our last visit. We arrived as a group of 8 with one infant and were treated to prompt seating. Each of our meals was outstanding as we ordered a variety of entrees. Whether is was pasta, a salad, soup, or meat, each result was delicious!... More

We were in Chicago to see Hamilton and found out about this lace. The food and decor were fantastic. We liked it so much that we went back the next day.

Enjoyed my meal and the staff were super friendly. Make sure to reserve as the wait can be painful a little.

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
